    This is a wonderful book about a young Amish girl named Lily, whose family has moved New York to Pennsylvania to join a new Amish community. This book has 36 chapters which actually turn out to be 36 wonderful short stories about Lily's daily life and her family and friends. Lily finds herself in many "fun" situations which are very enjoyable to read. Because the chapters seem more like a group of short stories, this makes it easy to read and I recommend it for 4th grade or older.(rev. P.Howard)

    "A New Home for Lily" is the second book in an Amish J

    "A New Home for Lily" is the second book in an Amish Juvenille fiction series "The Adventures of Lily Lapp" by authors Mary Ann Kinsinger and Suzanne Woods Fisher. Although I did read book one of this series, my children and I would have enjoyed this book even without having read the first one. A lovely trait of both books is that each individual chapter is a small story of its own - making it perfect for bedtime story reading! The stories also connect into one over-arching story line, but the fact each chapter is a story of its own is perfect for younger readers with shorter attention spans.

    I have read quite a bit of Amish fiction, but this series is the first I have ever read that is written from the viewpoint of a very young child. My girls don't get that this is modern day and call it 'stories about the girl who lived in a long time ago.' And really, that is what is unique about reading Amish fiction. It doesn't feel like our everyday lives, and yet we can still relate to the frustrations and joys these loveable younger characters face within the chapters of this series.

    In book two Lily is dealing with learning to love the things that are different about her family's new home in a new town. A new school, new friends ... and all the feelings of being uprooted and transplanted into a new situation. What small child can't relate to starting in a new classroom or a new school - even if they don't have to move to a new home?

    Today's blog post review is brought to you by my eight year old daughter, Alina.

    I like the book because Lily moved to a difrent state, and so did I! I like Lily because she sometimes gets in to trouble and you just want to keep reading about her! I would recommend this book to whoever is reading this review. I can't wait untill I get the next one!


    Revell Books sent this complimentary book to be reviewed. All opinions are Alina's.

     This book picks up where the first one left off, but it does very well as a stand alone.  Lily and her family are getting settled into their new house in Pennsylvania.  She is sad because of all those things that she feels was left behind in New York - Like her cousin Hannah and having her own bedroom.  In the new house, her bed and dresser are in the hallway at the top of the stairs.  She is excited to be going back to a real schoolhouse though.  She just hopes that her new teacher is nice.




    Lily grows up a little in this book - it covers her 2 - 4 grades.  In this time she experiences the birth of another baby in the family and also death.  She discovers that no matter where you live there are mean people, and that different doesn't always mean bad.  The chapters in the book are like individual little stories that give you glimpses into the life of an Amish child.  It sort of reminded me of the Little House on the Prairie books - Amish style.  I can't imagine any little girl who wouldn't enjoy meeting Lily and learning about her life.

    This is the second book in this story of Lily's life, and just as good as the first one! You do not need to read the first to enjoy this one, but don't miss it!
    This story begins with Lily Lapp's move from her home in NY to PA, a new school, and new friends. At first it seems like all children, where NY was better for everything.
    There are some funny and some sad things that happen, every day life, but we are traveling with Lily, a young Amish girl. In this story we are entering second grade, and at the end of the book, we are going to go into fourth grade in the fall.
    The Lapps are now living near their Grandparents Miller, and Lily is able to play dolls and visit often. Her Aunt Suzie has Downs Syndrome, but leads a very normal life among the Amish.
    Be ready for some great children's adventures here, asking to sleep in the barn....feeding a calf, and owning some new goats!
    I love reading these stories to my Grandson's, and at times they are almost rolling on the floor! Enjoy!!

    I received this book through the Revell's Book Blogging Program, and was not required to give a positive review.

    Charming and Entertaining

    The delightful Adventures of Lily Lapp series continues with the second installment, A NEW HOME FOR LILY by Suzanne Woods Fisher & Mary Ann Kinsinger, geared toward youngsters ages 8 to 12 (but also entertaining for adults). This fascinating series gives readers a glimpse of the Amish lifestyle through the eyes of young Lily Lapp. The book offers lovely line illustrations throughout that capture the story in great detail. A NEW HOME FOR LILY begins with Lily Lapp and her family moving to a new Amish community in Pennsylvania from New York. With the change, Lily has to adjust to a new school, make new friends and endure the annoying teasing of a neighbor’s son, Aaron Yoder. But with the bad comes some good in the form of an attic full of adventure and a new baby brother (even though Lily really wanted a baby sister). The community and its new residents also come together in a time of tragedy to give aid and in a time of need to help out one of their own. The story is written in short chapters, each featuring a separate event or experience making it a perfect book for bedtime reading for younger children. The charming story of the precocious Lily is a fun read for all ages. In addition, the line illustrations can be used as a teaching tool for youngsters and their parents to discuss the events of the story. The story flows smoothly and quickly. The characters are well-developed, realistic and engaging. The dialog written from Lily’s point of view will draw you in and hold you captive until the end. While A NEW HOME FOR LILY is the second installment in the series, it can be read on its own. However, to get the full enjoyment from the series I would recommend reading the books in order. The first installment is LIFE WITH LILY. Author Mary Ann Kinsinger uses real-life stories from growing up Amish and combines them with the talented writing skills of Amish fiction and nonfiction author Suzanne Woods Fisher to make the Adventures of Lily Lapp series a must read. FTC Full Disclosure - I requested this book as part of a blog tour and it was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.

    Ohh, I just love Lily Lapp, she is a precious little girl, who most of the time thinks much older than she should. She worries a bit too much but is also all child with her honesty and truthful ways. She admits when she is selfish, and mean. She tries hard to always be kind, but some people really make that hard for her. This story was just delightful. I enjoyed it so much, it is so fun to see Lily grow. This book took us through her second and third grade years, and we saw her as she became more confident and assured. I cried with her as she faced disappointments, the story of the doll broke my heart, that was very hard to comprehend for me as an adult, I can only imagine a little girl trying to come to terms with it. A great book from two wonderful storytellers. 266 pages US $12.99 5 stars. This book was provided for review purposes only, no payment was received for this review.
